Plans have been submitted for a new landmark office building at Birmingham's New Street railway station.

The facility, which is the Midlands city's busiest station, has currently been in the midst of significant redevelopment plans to improve customer satisfaction and handle the amount of passengers that pass through every year. The latest step in the redevelopment is the renovation of the 1960s office block above the station into Grade A office accommodation which will be renamed One Grand Central when complete.

Cannock Developments has been tasked with bringing the project to fruition and ensure that it becomes a leading central location which complements that travel and retail hub Birmingham New Street and the Grand Central shopping centre. Work is expected to begin at the start of next year with a completion date earmarked for 2015.

Mike Tracey, from Cannock Developments, said: "Without doubt this is an exciting and significant project for the Cannock Group in Birmingham and we are delighted to have been appointed to bring forward One Grand Central.

"A complete back to frame refurbishment of the building will ensure that this landmark building is highly attractive to modern office occupiers at a time when the quantity of quality office stock in the city is diminishing."

Once finished, One Grand Central will stretch over 100,000 sq ft and provide office space for a range of companies wanting to relocate into the heart of Birmingham. It will be an ideal location for employees who have to commute into the city every morning and will go alongside the £600 million redevelopment of Birmingham New Street.

The station is one of the busiest within the UK as it provides key links to London while also being a changing point for people travelling to Wales and the south-west of England. As well as the aesthetics being renovated it will also house a stop for the Midland Metro service which is expected to be operational by 2015.
